Mark Webber, Australia’s sole Formula 1 driver, has touched down in Tasmania in preparation for his annual ‘Mark Webber Challenge’ this weekend. Webber will be racing against 47 other sports stars, celebrities and business executives across 600km by hiking, cycling and kayaking. “I think I am fitter than last time” he announced. “I’m planning to have a lot of Tassie wine and cheese and get fat because I’ll be losing a bit of weight in the next few days” he also admitted.
The challenge is to raise money for cancer charities. Webber has already stated that all proceeds from his 2006 merchandise range will also be given to cancer charities. More information on the teams taking part is available here -> https://www.markwebberchallenge.com/race/
